* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the Tang Mo are a race of "[[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkey-folk]]" hailing from the continent of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]], far to the east of Tamriel. They are described as kind and brave, but also very simple. Despite this, they are capable of raising armies and have successfully defended themselves time and again against their hostile neighbors, including the Kamal "[[EvilIsDeathlyCold snow demons]]" and the Tsaesci "[[SnakePeople snake vampires]]".

* Dekar from the ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' series. Forget his skill in battle—this is a man who cannot remember ''how to leave a room he just entered''. (And that's just the least of it.)

** Yuna doesn't get off easily either. Her extreme unwillingness not to tell her Guardians about the sphere she retrieved from Jyscal and her subsequent actions regarding it are responsible for absolutely every non-Sin related bit of bad that happens to them between Guadosalam and Zanarkand, and that includes all of the lives lost in Home, St Bevelle, and Mt Gagazet. You can argue that Seymour wouldn't have just turned tail and given up which would have eventually had led to a conflict no matter what she did, but it is also true that the level-headed Lulu and Auron would have approached the situation far differently than she did, delaying any confrontation with Yevon until they were much better prepared for it.

* Yuri from ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' and its sequel. Deviates from the norm in that he's a {{Badass}} who also serves as a LampshadeHanging StraightMan to the inherent weirdness of the ''Shadow Hearts'' universe.

** M1-4X of the Trooper's party is definitely heroic (well, at least a cheerful Republic patriot who approves of the Trooper living up to Republic ideals), and definitely not the sharpest vibroblade in the drawer. {{Justified}} as he's designed for combat and propaganda, not feats of intelligence. Definitely PlayedForLaughs

* Ladies and gentlemen, we have the reigning queen of stupidity: surprisingly enough, Spiritia Rosenberg of ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}''. She has quite the long list ahead of her. For starters, being an {{Expy}} of VideoGame/MegaMan, she is naive, as pointed out by her colleagues (some of them even think her naivete could be her fatal flaw) - naive enough to believe that Iris really is a kind, innocent girl who wouldn't even hurt a flea. When her friends at RKS start a war against the [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Empire]], she does the whole "SwiperNoSwiping" deal with everyone without knowing that [[spoiler:Iris actually started the war between both factions just ForTheEvulz]] and without snooping around to get to the bottom of the madness (at least she [[RightForTheWrongReasons does what she thinks is right]]). And then there's the moment in Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert where Tia tries to stop Grolla from killing [[spoiler:Iris herself]] believing that she was a sweetheart. Grolla knows otherwise from her own personal experience. And, to top it all off, she is quite clumsy and is a TERRIBLE swimmer. Yes, you heard us. A TERRIBLE SWIMMER.

* Spinoffs aside, the only playable character from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' not to have some degree of this is Sakuya. Youmu would be a fairly archetypal example except she's not the main character. Reimu ''is'' the main character, but lacks most of the positive qualities associated with the trope. Marisa has the basic personality, but is actually fairly clever and knowledgeable (despite openly claiming to be stupid). And Sanae is an airhead. Including spinoffs, Cirno acts the part fairly well, but she's only good at combat relative to [[{{Mooks}} other fairies]].

* Computer technician and RedHeadedHero Lance Galahad of ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'' can be this, even in death scenes.

** ''Fallout'' arguably provides a {{Deconstruction}} of this trope. As stated, you will be locked out of a lot of quests and rewards as most [=NPCs=] [[DudeWheresMyRespect will treat you as a joke]]. Plus you'll probably end up screwing over a ''lot'' of people [[NiceJobBreakingItHero in your attempts to "help" them]].
